The Scissor Case

I am moving right along on this.  I guess I really needed a "small" to work on after a three month exclusive focus on a BAP.  It's so nice to see something come together quickly instead inch by inch.  And doing some satin stitching and plait stitching is nice after cross stitching for three months.  I have finished all the stitching with silk floss and now I get to play with silk ribbon stitching spider web roses and seed stitched leaves along the vine separating the stitchers.  I'll finish up with a few beads as charted.  Oh, my!  The variety! I just may swoon.  

And being able to put up my first finish of the year in the sidebar by this evening ... well, that's a nice bonus, too.  I can't remember a time since I began stitching some 45  years ago that I was so far into the new year without a finish.

Well done - it's good to have a little variety to our stitching. This is going to look great.
